Although their tiny size, they are the permanent nightmare of summer evenings. No matter how young or old we dress from the top to the nails to escape their attacks, he finds the back door to suck our blood. The reason for the mosquitoes, which as they multiply with the rise in temperature, the more likely we fall into their nets.
Many people get bitten by mosquitoes each year, but bites can affect people differently. When mosquitoes bite, they draw out blood while injecting some of their saliva. Their saliva contains an anticoagulant and proteins.
The proteins are foreign substances that trigger the body’s immune system. To fight them the body’s immune system releases histamine, a compound that helps white blood cells get to the affected area. Histamine is what causes the itchiness, inflammation, and swelling.
Sometimes if a person is bitten for the first time they won’t have a response. This is because their body hasn’t formulated a response to the foreign invader. And some people may not notice bites at all. Others may build up a tolerance over time.
